Abstract : "This study investigates a new fault-tolerant control method for uncertain nonlinear systems with multiple
intermittent faults and time-varying delays. The considered intermittent faults appear in sensors and actuators
simultaneously. A Markov chain is used to describe the random occurrence and disappearance of intermittent
faults. The uncertain nonlinear system with intermittent faults is augmented as a Markovian jump system. By using
H-infinity control theory and linear matrix inequality (LMI), we design fault tolerant controllers to make augmented
Markovian jump system work steadily. Several sufficient conditions for stochastic stability with given H-infinity
performance index and the existence of output-feedback controllers are derived. The effectiveness of the proposed
fault-tolerant method is validated by a continuously stirred tank reactor (CSTR)."
